Best apple cake ever!!! The only one I have made for years. My daughter just requested it for her "birthday cake", it's that good.

I have been making this cake for years; since I found it in a Taste of Home magazine back in the 90's. It gets awesome reviews and I personally LOVE it!! I make the cake itself exactly as directed. Sometimes I dust it with powdered sugar and sometimes I do a simple milk/powdered sugar glaze.

I love apple pie so I was a little hesitant about making this cake. I'm glad I decided to make it anyway. We loved it.

This cake is delicious and very moist. I added some chopped walnuts over the apple slices and liked the addition. This was raved over by guests. It kept moist for several days.
